GQOM WAVE HITS GLOBAL SHORES

on

Today marks a global first for South Africa as accomplished producer, Themba Sekowe, better known as DJ Maphorisa releases his GQOM WAVE compilation, and self-titled documentary, on Apple Music. To top that off you can catch DJ Maphorisa on LiveAMP at 19h30 tonight, and much later on Apple Music’s Beats One mix at 02:00AM CAT.

The rise of Gqom as a genre outside of our borders has been making waves for some time, and DJ Maphorisa intends to propel this into a global phenomenon.

“I am thrilled to be at the forefront of a movement that will see Gqom become a global phenomenon. The documentary is intended to speak to a worldwide audience that is hungry for an authentic sound from the continent. On Gqom Wave I have tried to capture the hottest tracks in the scene right now with some up and coming producers that I believe will go far. ” said DJ Maphorisa.

GQOM WAVE is the first release through the recently announced joint venture with DJ Maphorisa’s Blaqboy Music and Sony Music Africa.

DJ Maphorisa’s passion and mission is to unearth new talent through the Blaqboy Music JV as is evident on GQOM WAVE where he has collaborated with a number of producers from around the country.  The compilation features a stellar line-up of some of the greatest names making waves in the Gqom scene right now along with up and coming producers.

DJ Maphorisa has co-produced the latest smash hit single Midnight Starring with Rude Boyz and Distruction Boyz feat. DJ Tira, Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly – which is the lead single off GQOM WAVE that continues to  make waves on radio and dominate club dancefloors.
